No opinion of CEO

Pros

The people and culture is very positive and comfortable. Even with complex issues to solve, we all can laugh and feel community---very open and natural---supporting culture. Everyone is focused on getting the job done so there is a great level of trust when it comes to dealing with personal matters and time off. Incredibly smart and helpful engineers make for engaging work. Great place to work if it is to raise a family or somewhere where you can run with your career.

Cons

At the mercy of corporate management who make decisions on the service business while treating it like the software arm.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The electronic design automation domain is complex, hence there are deep algorithmic challenges in most tasks.

    Cons

    High-level management does not seem to be clueful, engineers not given enough respect, lower pay than competitors, unfairness in promotions, company seems to be doing worse than competitors, excessive politics, mid-level management discourages most things except maintenance-mode bug-fixing stuff, poor parity between different products in promotions and pay. All imho.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your engineers, make middle-management accountable, and encourage innovation.
